Cover Story

Too Many Lawyers? Not Here. In rural America, lawyers are few and far between

Wishek, North Dakota, is 90 minutes southeast of Bismarck and roughly six hours from either Minneapolis-Saint Paul or Winnipeg, Manitoba. Settled by ethnic Germans fleeing Russia, it’s a farm community on the opposite end of the state from North Dakota’s oil boom. As a result, Wishek hasn’t seen the influx of people and money causing problems for its northern neighbors. Though it’s the biggest city in McIntosh County, it’s still pretty small—the 2010 census counted 1,002 people.
